Working with young people is a passion for Robert. Professionally he has served as a School Teacher and later as Children's Service Manager. Upon migrating to Canada in 1989, he continued to work with youth as a Probation Officer. He has been working as a Probation Manager in Toronto since 1996. During this period he was also seconded as Provincial Crown Ward Reviewer and Inquest Monitor for the Provincial Government.
Robert's long standing contribution to the Youth Justice System qualifies him for the position of Senior Vice-President of Educational Foundation for Children's Care Canada. While he has held various church leadership positions, his community service is more notably recognized in his past service as Prison Ministry President and Trainer.
Robert's vision is that more people would become seriously involved in mentorship.
